Hot Spots

The 2010 It List

by Ondine Cohane

We're declaring 2010 to be Travel's Comeback Year. And not just because of the recovering economy: A combination of changed political circumstances, increased access, and once-in-a-lifetime events is opening up some of the world's most beautiful hideaways for your traveling pleasure. The ten destinations on our 2010 It List are next year's travel trophies, the spots that most people can't find on a map, or even (in the case of Kyrgyzstan) pronounce. From forbidden locales like Burma and Cuba to familiar-but-refreshed spots like Venice and Marrakesh, here are the places on our radar next year. Pack your suitcase—and your atlas!
